I asked for an Xbox for my birthday. My wife did not comply with this request.

Aw, how come? Birthday's are for things you want/would like, as long as they're affordable and not really stupid, though then again why not stupid as well?

I don't know why...(insert sad face)

When I ask for a Xbox it's met with a laugh, but if my daughter asks for a TV for Christmas it's placed as a top priority.

I don't know why it is that some people feel adults should not have hobbies that are considered as "children's" entertainment, especially when some of the games for said "toys" are 18+ and not for kiddies.

When hubby says that he'd like PS2, I automatically think ahead for the next upgrade, which we did do...etc; maybe I'm just more open-minded.

I saw on Judge Judy where she stated that adults should not be playing games ie, xbox, PS1/2/3, and any other but I bet she wouldn't be against a game of tennis, because that would be adult...

Games help people meditate and I actively encourage hubby to play the PS3 to reduce his pain levels.

Game playing has been around since the dawn of time. There are seemingly mindless games like God of War that have puzzles and strategies that are fairly complicated.

Not sure why video games are taboo. My daughter and I play chess on the Wii. It's easier that way.

Yep! There does seem this mentality amongst a good percentage of women that video games machines are a big no-no; though there is a small percentage (I assume, it's a smaller percentage) of women that also play the games and are as into them as the men are.

I would much rather sit around the table and play Stratego than watch TV.

Yeah, that's the odd part, it's acceptable to watch TV which is generally unproductive but to play Stratego which requires brainwork is not so acceptable...I wonder if the anti-gamers ever consider it in that light.

One thing's for certain...given a choice, most kids would rather play a game.
